A satisfactory wound dressing will provide optimal conditions for wound healing, be relatively simple for healthcare providers to change and ensure that exudate, liquid and odor do not inconvenience the patient. The aging population means that a larger number of patients will be admitted to hospitals for surgeries and diagnostic procedures. Moreover, older patients have more fragile skin and immune systems, driving the demand for dressings that can protect the skin against moisture, friction and pressure. In addition, prevention of hospital-acquired infections is driving demand for antimicrobial and iodine dressings. Overall, the market will be driven predominantly by volume growth, but will also be limited by pricing competition between manufacturers.
The wound-healing process consists of four phases: hemostasis (or coagulation), inflammation, proliferation and epithelialization. When a wound cannot heal, due to abnormalities in the bodys physiological processes, it can remain chronically open. This is the case with diabetic and venous ulcers. Open wounds can also develop if an individual is immobile and has reduced sensory perception, as is the case with bed-ridden elderly patients and paralyzed or sedated patients. Once these wounds occur, advanced wound dressings can play an important role in closing the wound and helping the bodys natural healing processes.
